Artist concept rendering: Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind will be the first “other-world” showcase pavilion at EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The adventure starts in the Galaxarium, a planetarium-like exhibition that explores the similarities and mysteries of the formation of Earth’s galaxy and Xandar. Guests will be invited to learn more about the treasures Xandar has to share – until the moment when the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive, and adventures across the cosmos ensue. The attraction will feature a new innovation from Walt Disney Imagineering – a storytelling coaster that rotates 360 degrees to focus guests on the action, including the first reverse launch on a Disney coaster.

Ellen’s Energy Adventure and the rest of the pavilion closed in 2017 to make way for the new Marvel roller coaster.

Imagineer Zach Riddley replied to a comment on his Instagram hinting at the presence of multiple easter eggs. Reportedly, the launch takes us back to The Big Bang. Rumor has it Rocket will say “The Ding Dang” in reference to a quote by Ellen in the former attraction. There will be more beyond this as well.

  1. TOTALLY miss The Universe of Energy Ride. Or kids loved it and it was great on a rainy day.

  2. Personally, I don’t want any “Stupid Judy” reduxes. I want a big kinetic screen whose rotating panels are high definition and at least 1 dinosaur somewhere. That will never relace the awe I felt when I first saw it waaaay back at the very beginning, nor assuage the sadness I feel that the only way I can relive the ride is through grainy vhs videos posted to YouTube, but at least it would be something honouring the OG ride. To be fair, I’m just glad they even considered doing any kind of throwback, so huzzah to them!

  3. I miss the universe of energy because it was wheelchair accessible, I doubt the new attraction is.
